AONB: Northumberland Coast

Whin Grasslands

Through the Peregrini Landscape Partnership Scheme and our Coast Care volunteering initiative the AONB Partnership have facilitated the clearance of  invasive Gorse from over 3 hectares to allow the special plant communities of the rare coastal whin grasslands which are found nowhere else in the world.

Survey work has also been carried out advice given to farmers and landowners on how to manage whin grasslands.
